    So heres the deal.

    Today when i putted Moonshell2 (V2.05) on my sd card and wanted to boot up my Cyclo it told me my sd card wasnt formatted.
    Now i watched some threaths but still not sure to wich format i have to format.

    Where talking about a:
    4GB Emtec MicroSDHC Class4.

    I also Downloaded the panasonic sd formatter v2.0 but there doesnt seem an option to choose fat 16 or fat32

    Regards

    what do you mean 'watched some threaths'??
    do you mean thread?

    did you try using Windows to format your microSD card?
    you can either format it fat16 or 32. but fat32 is recommended.

    windows gui only supports fat16 up to 2gb. If you had a 4gb card and wanted to format it to fat16 you'd have to do it in dos. There are only a hand full of situations where you would even want to format a 4gb to fat16. If you had a 4gb card that was non-sdhc and you wanted to use it on a slot two M3 perfect, supercard, or EZ-Flash IV you would format to fat16 and it would work.
